The largest interstellar dust track found in the Stardust aerogel collectors was this 35 micron long hole produced by a 3 picogram mote that was probably traveling so fast that it vaporized upon impact. The other two likely interstellar dust grains were traveling more slowly and remained intact after a soft landing in the aerogel. Andrew Westphal image.
